Description - Counterpoints by Phillipe Junod

This book's main focus is music and its relationship with painting, sculpture and architecture. Philippe Junod draws on theoretical and practical examples to show how different art movements throughout history have embraced or rejected creative combinations. He explains how the Renaissance, Neoclassicism and certain brands of modernism tried to claim the purity of each mode of expression, while other movements such as Romanticism, Symbolism and Surrealism called for a fusion of the arts. Counterpoints: Dialogues between Music and the Visual Arts is a unique cultural history that provides a critical understanding of a popular but unheralded art form.
